This is especially true when you consider that most correspondence never gets printed, and a lot of correspondence does not go out on letterhead in the first place. This makes DIY letterhead an increasingly defensible choice. Using resources likeTypography for Lawyers, a few Word tips, and perhaps a bit of well-placed graphic design help, you can design your own letterhead. Here are step-by-step instructions for designing your own letterhead in Microsoft Word, plus examples from Lawyerist readers who have done just that.

The ruling implements federal tax aspects of the June 26 Supreme Court decision invalidating a key provision of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.
The General Municipal Law was recently amended in relation to service of notices of claim against public corporations. Public corporations, as defined in the General Construction Law, include municipal corporations, district corporations and public benefit corporations. Specifically, General Municipal Law section 53 was amended to permit notices of claim against public corporations to be served on the New York Secretary of State. The New York Department of State will forward the notice of claim to the person designated by the public corporation to receive the notice of claim.
Public corporations will be required to file a certificate with the New York Department of State designating the New York Secretary of State as their agent for service of notices of claim. The certificate must provide address information for the transmittal of notices of claim. Failure of a public corporation to file such a certificate will not invalidate any notice of claim served on the New York Secretary of State.
A person serving a notice of claim on the New York Secretary of State will be charged a $250 service fee. Half of the service fee will be retained by the New York Secretary of State and the other half provided to the public corporation or public corporations named in the notice of claim. Public corporations that do not file a Certificate of Designation of Notice of Claim with the New York Department of State will not receive a share of the service fees.
Certificates of Designation of Notice of Claim may be filed online. Online filing is available from 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Paper forms are also available. Completed paper forms may be sent to the Department of State, Division of Corporations, State Records and Uniform Commercial Code, One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY 12231.
The Secretary of State may be served with notices of claim against public corporations beginning Monday, July 15, 2013.
Any questions regarding notices of claim may be sent to the Department of State at eDesignation@dos.ny.gov.
